Boomkat Product Review:
'To Beat' is surely the most accessible album in CoH's long and illustrious catalogue of extreme electronic music. It picks up right where 'RETRO-2038' left off on 'Method As Fun' by keenly focussing on the aesthetics of pure sinewaves and rhythm. Like some origami high master, the Swedish-based Russian producer folds and layers sheer tones into pulsing, spitting waves of rhythmic and melodic energy, transforming sine-waves into a waveform which is essentially a beat. He makes the maths involved audibly clear in the opening track 'Wave To Beat''s mercurial transition from near-static hum to a clipped, rounded throb, before expanding this idea in more vibrant, colourfully adventurous manner across the proceeding eight tracks. 'Meguro 10-6' is the most dynamic, alloying washes of white noise with bristling, stereo-swept swing techno rhythms and even a strange vocal - a combination also explored in the more reduced, darker 'Eena Ferroix' - whilst others take on mutant forms of coiled, serpentine techno, as with the trance-like flux of 'Moonviewhigh' and the tucked, pendulous shuffle of 'Bond Number', before 'BEAT TO WAVE' inverts the formula to transition back from wonky thumps to sine-wave resting point, accentuating the duality of rhythm and tone. Those of you who crave CoH's uncompromising aesthetics will be pleased to know it's all still assuredly visceral stuff; only you could almost dance to it now.
